Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
My street, snowed over.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Where did the cars go?!
I took this picture for Mom. This bar isn't far from my apartment, and we ate several dinners there in September when I moved out. It sure looked different five months later!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
I saw this cheap trunk at Home Goods and wanted it for a coffee table, but couldn't transport it home. The next day, after work, I went back to measure it and see about shipping. And I decided just to strongarm it back on the bus. When Mom called to ask if I'd found out about the cost, I said, "Oh, yeah, shipping is free." Just a little sweat!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
